almost like an ombre, pink and coral blend together seamlessly and make for beautiful bedfellows. these two shades are a tone on tone lovers dream come true, not to mention their very wes anderson sensibilities. it also brings to mind luis barragán’s beautiful mexico city abode. i love searching for trends in color pairings, and this one got me a little overly excited, so please pardon the plethora of pink & coral! whether you add a little dab here and there, or go full-blown wes, you can’t go wrong with this effervescent color palette. i even made a pinboard for you!

i’m not certain of the reasons why, but it would appear i’m feeling very vintage today — one might almost say, victorian. perhaps i can blame it on the fact that i’m here in france, shopping for super marché. i hope you’ve got some relaxing time ahead of you! might i suggest you treat yourself to an afternoon of high tea, or a day trip to your local spa or salon for a dose of what i’m sure is well-deserved pampering? . happy friday, everyone. xo, victoria

  1. i love the styling in this bedroom — the ephemera casually pinned to the walls, the pink bedspread, and even a tophat — a clever little detail.
  2. the pairing of this swedish fireplace, high ceilings and ornate crown molding with modern furniture really rings my bells. love it!
  3. this fireplace mantel styling is spot-on. i love all the vintage layering from the sconces to the tassles and prints — just lovely.
  4. from a lightly over the top pink salon to a shimmery pink and gold velvet robe, this is all 100% girly.
  5. this is a beautiful bedroom and the color palette looks like a most soothing space in which to rest our weary heads after the long week.
  6. are you the romantic that saves your long-dead flower bouquets? then this little bit of styling is right up your sentimental alley.
  7. everything about this bedroom is romantic too, but with a vintage modern vibe. very restful, and with those always enviable high ceilings.
  8. and this is probably the most victorian bedroom — just look at those marie Antonette-worthy ceilings — but throw in a platform bed and black steel doors and it’s simply transformed!

best of: wear this there: the siren hotel. / sfgirlbybay

today we’re throwing some love towards detroit, michigan and visiting the beautiful new the siren hotel. designed by Detroit architect Robert Finn in 1926, the siren hotel revitalizes downtown’s historic Wurlitzer building and has become one of detroit’s trendiest spots to stay the night. voted the second best city to visit in 2018 by lonely planet, detroit is making a much-deserved comeback and is the spot to be seen. we suggest visiting the hotel’s candy bar wearing a very feminine, but motor-city-worthy outfit including your best rocker tee, Bomber Jacket, a sassy pair of high-heeled boots and a cool crossbody bag. when you finally cozy up for the night in one of their beautiful guest rooms settle in with Jeffrey Eugenides’ Middlesex which chronicles three generations of a Greek-American family who travel from a tiny village overlooking Mount Olympus to Prohibition-era Detroit. enjoy your detroit stay!

xo, victoria
